Tax-free internet purchases could be coming to an end in Florida
“A majority of those surveyed here in Florida are against an internet sales tax,” said Christian Camara of the Washington D.C. based think tank R Street Institute. The group commissioned the poll that he claims highlights the unfairness of the Marketplace Fairness Act.
“When you’re in New York City and you go to a souvenir shop, the owner doesn’t ask ‘where are you from? Oh you’re from Florida. Let me charge you the Florida State sales tax.’ No, you pay the New York State sales tax,” Camara said.
